The Franklys embark on their most extensive and ambitious tour since they formed and promise each show will be ‘loud, raw, energetic, sweaty, and an exciting spectacle!”   The Franklys  first tour of 2016 starts in Brigton on February 29th and finishes 18 shows later with 2 shows in one day,  first the Freehold Festival in Liverpool followed by The Firebug in Leicester on April 8nd.


The Franklys, are an all girl rock 'n' roll band based in London. 50% Swedish, 25% British, 25% American, 100% rock’n’roll.


This four piece force of nature features a rhythm section as solid and driving as an army tank, which consists of all-American drummer Nicole Pinto and home grown talent Zoe Biggs on bass. Fronting up the quartet like a pair of firecrackers are Swedish pair Jen Ahlkvist (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) with her bitter sweet and ever so edgy vocals, and Fanny Broberg (lead guitar), contributing double-barrelled screaming guitars and melodic guitar hooks, lending a rich variety to the styles and sounds that cascade off the stage.


The Franklys love ’50s rock’n’roll, ’60s psych, ’70s punk, ’80s new wave and YOU will love The Franklys, so catch them at a show near you.
